The civil court also have the jurisdiction to preside over claims for ‘Harta Sepencarian’ among Muslims however it is discussing in little room. This is because, the equality of division property jointly acquired between civil and syariah court is different.

For instance, the civil court may give the wife more than husband the division of property jointly acquired if the wife actively contribute her husband in money, property, or larbour towards acquiring of the assets. The civil court also may not give the wife any division of property jointly acquired if she did not active in contribute her husband in money, property, or larbour towards acquiring of the assets.

Therefore, the civil court will give the claims for ‘Harta Sepencarian’ among Muslims to Syariah Court first since it is involving Hukum Syara’.
